How does WPS Office 2016 stack up against the competition? In my opinion it blows the competition out of the water! You don’t have to take my word for it, though. In an analytical comparison between WPS Office 2016, Google Docs, Microsoft Office Home & Business 2-16, and WordPerfect Office X7 Professional, WPS Office 2016 was a stand out in lots of categories. One of the biggest differences is that you can download WPS Office 2016 on your mobile device for absolutely FREE!
Writer looks very similar to Microsoft Word so users shouldn’t have trouble getting acclamated to the layout. It is 100% compatible with Microsoft Word, so you can open your .DOC and .DOCX documents easily and begin making changes. Choose from over 230 fonts and lots of templates plus make any formatting change you need such as font color, columns and tables, and more. You can even use Mail Merge or protect your document with a password! Here’s something that WPS Office offers that other suites do not: Tabbed View. The Tabbed View feature lets you open, edit, and manage multiple documents at the very same time!
Presenations is 100% compatible with Microsoft Powerpoint which is great news. You can easily create or edit a presentation with WPS Office 2016 and not worry if it will load properly on the office computer that runs Powerpoint. If you’re familiar with Powerpoint then you shouldn’t have any trouble getting used to Presentations as the layout and formatting looks pretty similar.
Spreadsheets is 100% compatible with Microsoft Excel. Now you can easily manage spreadsheets and budgets from computer to computer without having to save a file in a unique format. Spreadsheets comes with customizable charts, over 230 fonts, hundreds of formulas and functions, and more.
